Case, John W.
a Methodist Episcopal minister, was born at West Greenwich, R. I., July 22, 1798. He was converted at sixteen, and in 1822 was admitted on trial to the New England Conference. When the conference was divided, in 1840, he became a member of the Providence Conference, from which he received laborious appointments with small compensation until 1873, after which he was a supernumerary till 1878, and thereafter a superannuate. With declining health his mind failed, and the last few weeks of his life were spent in the Hartford Retreat for the Insane, where he died, May 13, 1880. His preaching was clear, concise, and practical; his pastorate faithful and useful. See Minutes of Annual Conferences 1881, p. 88.
